Searching for the New Me

When I was in high school, I was at my maximum weight at 260 pounds. It took me 10 months to lose 90 pounds, and has been a yo-yo battle ever since. During college, I gained a little back, then lost quite a bit more toward the end, then gained it back when I got my teaching job, lost more again, and gained it back. I'm sure this sounds familiar to many people, but that has been my life.

When I was in high school, I was at my maximum weight at 260 pounds. It took me 10 months to lose 90 pounds, and has been a yo-yo battle ever since. During college, I gained a little back, then lost quite a bit more toward the end, then gained it back when I got my teaching job, lost more again, and gained it back. I'm sure this sounds familiar to many people, but that has been my life.

I had realized that I never stayed consistent with an active lifestyle. I have changed my eating habits for the most part, but I have fallen off the track a few times, and became lazy, once again, and not getting proper sleep. Of course, everything changed when I got pregnant and gave birth to the most awesome little boy a mom could ask for.

Call this my ultimate project...to permanently change ALL of that. Maintain a healthy lifestyle...getting active, and staying active..maintaining healthy eating habits. Obesity has been my enemy since I began Kindergarten, and I'm ready to defeat it!

I'm using Scripture and a public blog post, as well as making new friends who are as committed as I am to keep me going. It is hard to do this alone.

My blog is at the site listed below. I am using this to keep my motivation going, as well as being held accountable and hoping to motivate and inspire others who are in the same boat as I am.

Happy Sunday. Hope you're summer is going great. Are you still on track to do all you can today to reach your goals tomorrow? If so, great! If not, what can you change today that will help you feel accomplished? One little thing. Drink more water? Cut out soda? Go for a walk? Small changes add up.

Hoping you are still trying to focus on positive things. Sometimes this journey is a long one - actually, I think it is usually a long one. So we just have to stay the course.
Have a blessed weekend! emoticon
